Q1: Do the numbers of the balls have to be in the right order for you to win?
A: No, you just have to make sure that five numbers of your white-colored ball are matching with the white-colored numbers they announce. For example, if they announce five numbers – 5, 18, 35, 10, 52 and you have chosen 35, 52, 18, 5, 10 then also you win. But as there is only one red-colored ball, it has to be the same.
